Letter to the editor: ‘Life Chain’ will return to Highland Oct. 4

Dear Editor,

The National Life Chain, sponsored by the Right to Life of Highland Association / Small Victories Pregnancy Outreach, will be held Sunday, Oct. 4, 2015 from 2 to 3 p.m.

The National Life Chain is the largest peaceful, prayerful, pro-life, silent public witness in the world. More than 1,000 cities across the U.S. and Canada are expected to participate on Sunday, Oct. 4.

The Right to Life of Highland Association / Small Victories and area churches will be participating in the Highland Life Chain at the intersection of U.S. Highway 40 and Illinois Route 143. Please arrive by 1:45 p.m. to pick out your sign. Small Victories table captains will meet and hand out signs and help with chairs.

Stand with thousands of pro-lifers for one hour throughout the USA and Canada praying for an end to abortion.

Bring your whole family.

Water, lawn chairs, umbrellas and strollers are welcomed and encouraged.

Signs proclaim” “Abortion Kills Children,” “Adoption - the Loving Option,” “Jesus Forgives & Heals,” “Lord, Forgive Us and Our Nation,” “Abortion Hurts Women,” “El Aborto Mata Ninos,” “Life - the First Inalienable Right” and “Pray to End Abortion.” These are the official and only Life Chain signs to be used during this event.

This is a non-denominational peaceful, prayerful event and is open to all denominations and churches.

Please join us and the community as we strive to bring attention to this blight on our nation as we stand along the intersection of Route 143 and Highway 40 as a silent, prayerful witness to life.

For more information, call 654-5800.
